Girlfriend Film lets Down syndrome actor show off his acting chops

Breaking down barriers and living his silver screen dream, actor Evan Sneider is proof that talent conquers all.

The 31-year-old actor with Down syndrome stars in the film Girlfriend, which premiered at the TIFF this week.

Sneider shines in his first feature-length role as a man caught between the woman he longs for and her abusive ex-boyfriend. It’s a part that requires subtlety and sophistication and Sneider’s nuanced performance is a cornerstone for the entire film.

Boston-born Sneider has pursued acting for most of his life and has performed in more than 20 community theatre productions as well as having a small role in the short film The Replacement Child in 2007. He sees his role in Girlfriend as his big break into the career he’s dreamed of since childhood.
